seems the spot might be somewhat dictated by how many are anticipated?.........maybe a quick check in to see who'd show up?
Then we could discuss spots that would work.
Would we want to think about a public park type setting, campground, or, someones private property?

I've heard a lot of applaices will run on D.C. just as they are. Anyone know? I would be shocked if an AC appliance ran on DC. Give it a try with one of your own. :-> I will do that.

and, with inverters make sure you don't run very near the max. output of the inverter....they get hot and that lowers effiency, and, breaks them. Mostly, the load stated is the max, and, for short periods of time.......... I've heard a lot of applaices will run on D.C. just as they are. Anyone know?
